The Bledsoe Beat
Growing students socially, emotionally, and academically.
Message from Mrs. Klingenberg, Incoming Principal for 18-19
I have enjoyed meeting many of you and your students. Bledsoe is such a warm and welcoming community, and I am so honored to serve as your principal next year. I completely believe in Bledsoe’s mission to grow every student socially, emotionally, and academically. As the principal next year, I want to continue the work of us positively impacting the whole child as a Bledsoe community to be 3GSTRONG. As an elementary school we have students for six years in a very formative time to influence each child to develop grit, grace, and a growth mindset. I believe that it takes all of us working together to make this happen, and I look forward to working with each of you in carrying this vision forward next school year. Together we are Bledsoe Strong!
Even though the end of the school year is fast approaching, the PTA still has two fun events planned before the school year ends! Field Day for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade will be held on May 23rdand Field Day for Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade is on May 24th. Bledsoe's End of Year Luau Party for Kindergarten through 4th Graders will be on May 31st. 5th Grade has a fun off-site party planned for May 30th. Parents are welcome to attend these events.
The Snowball Express snow cone truck will be providing snow cones for all students at the End of Year Parties. Snow cones can be purchased for parents and younger siblings for $1 each. Please bring dollar bills if you plan to purchase one. Fifth Graders will receive a snow cone this year too!
For these events to be successful, we rely on volunteers to help. Below are Sign Up Genius Links for Field Day and the End of Year parties. Please consider volunteering. A background check through FISD must be complete in order to volunteer.
